Honey Garlic Ribs

Now that Valentine's Day is behind us...and we've all had our fill of sweets...I'll pass along our favorite recipe for ribs. I have no idea where the recipe originated...but have been using it for years. I normally serve it with 'golden mashed potatoes'...but never thought to take a photo until after the meal...and the potatoes did not show up for the photo shoot!

Honey Garlic Ribs

1 ½ to 2 kg pork side ribs (about 4 pounds)
½ cup honey
1 cup ketchup
¼ cup soy sauce
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp. coarse black pepper
1 tsp. salt

Place ribs in large roasting pan with about ½ inch of water. Cover & bake at 350 degrees F. for 1 ½ hours. Drain water from roaster.

Combine remaining ingredients to make sauce. Pour over the ribs & bake for another ½ to 1 hour, basting ribs occasionally with the sauce.
